eight, paul ryan took a shot at it to his political peril, it was used against him when he was running for the white house. these politicians, they don't really have the spine for taking a shot at these very, very controversial so-called third rail issues and yet you can see the american people want them to, bill. bill: yeah, i think the other number that i find striking today, four years ago unemployment in the u.s. was 7.8%. and four years later on this very day it is also 7.8% as we see the first family now leave the white house, and again make the procession up to capitol hill. yet, i'm not quite sure how much that will be addressed in terms of the inaugural speech today. it may be brushed with more, perhaps a thematic theme than specific. megyn: you can't imagine he will talk about the unemployment rate which obviously isn't very good in this country and is expected now to stay at at least 7% through 2014. president obama promised if we passed the stimulus we would be no higher than 8%, of course we went up to 10%, now we are still hovering in the high single digits. we are told t
, which is they've got to make their case. it's time now for paul ryan and other republicans to lay out their alternative and to fight this president better than they have. jon: he talked about green energy and how it is still a panacea. i want to play it and get a real quick thought from each of you. here we go. >> yeah, sure. >> we, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. jon: okay. that, that was, obviously, about winding down the wars in afghanistan and iraq. um, suggesting, i guess, that those republicans who have said it's too soon to leave afghanistan are wrong. what do you think about that, simon? >> well, we don't agree. [laughter] and i think that, you know, look, my -- two of my kids are 7 and 10, they were down on the mall with me yesterday. we've been at war in afghanistan their entire lives. so this notion that there is war weariness and we have not fought these wars the way we needed to to achieve success i think is a fair criticism by this president of a failed foreign policy of the previous president. jon: matt, y
got one piece of news from paul ryan, of course, the vice presidental candidate with mitt romney and the head of the house budget committee an says the fight to have, and the hostage not to take is over the debt ceiling. because obviously if you go -- if you default, if you go over the debt ceiling and there is some technicality whether it's really a default or not, but it would certainly tank the economy and hurt our credit rating and raise interest rates. what ryan is suggesting is you just delay, you extend the debt ceiling for a few months and then you have the night oversee questions tracing, because there's already a hundred billion dollars in spending cuts that's baked in the cake that will take effect on march 1st. that's the point at which you say to the president if you're the republicans, look, we can either go with that hundred billion dolla dollar cut or work something else but we're going to cut a lot of money out of the budget. bill: can that idea move forward do you think. >> it makes a lot more sense. the republicans have a lot more leverage there and they don't
and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do anything in the context of the debate -- the fiscal debates we're in now to improve their brand, to improve their standing? >> i think with the middle, they could. the problem, though, is, mark, you know, so they hit their all-time low or high, however you want to characterize this number. it's the worst negative rating we've ever actually recorded for the republican party. but it was republicans. it's republicans who have now a more negative view. there's still more republicans that have a positive view than negative view, but it is core republicans who are upset with the party. so you have to ask yourself, if you're the republican party, who do you win back first, and how do you do it? so if they did a big grand bargain, their favorable ratings would jump a lot with a bunch of voters who may not ever support who they are. that'
